Join here to contribute to a conversation about – Empowering Women to Bike For Transportation http://www.apbp.org/events/event_details.asp?id=216133
Among people speaking will be Claire Stoscheck from Cycles for Change http://www.cyclesforchange.org/about – you have to check them out!
And Kim Cross of Magic City Cycle Chix http://magiccitycyclechix.wordpress.com/, with more bad-ass lady cyclists/mechanic/enthusiast speakers to be announced.
Join in with your own perspective, experience, stories and insight as to how cycling can become a part of regular transportation for women. Inspire others to build or secure confidence, challenge themselves, and break down obstacles that may be barriers to women using cycling as transportation. Offer support and resources that may make this mode more accessible and safe.
Register at the link above. And continue to make this a priority in your neighborhood and community. You can form your own cycling as transportation alliances and support networks to ensure more safe, accessible, and comfortable commuting. I wonder what kind of advice or suggestions they may offer to begin this kind of work, or enrich already existing models of commuter support and safety…. register to find out!
